:-) Sentient, when you find spores on the flowers you know it's Delphinium. Spores are the useless looking long extensions, one on each flower. I found the name larkspur - is that the name you use?

Does anyone know what a large cluster of, small, bugs could be on my oak trees?? They're on the bark. When I took a photo they came out looking like tiny yellow jackets.
I've spent the past few hours searching the internet and still can't find them.??

Joan, ironically enough went out with Rio awhile ago - and my lantana plant has what appears to be powdery mildew on it!  Went back online to do further reading.  Discovered there a many different fungi that cause it, but all do their best in high humidity and moderate temps - and here I am in the middle of both.  Aphids apear to be the major carrier of it as you obviously know. Currently only on one plant and I'm going to spray it to hopefully keep from entire plant.

A belated thanks to Chris who identified my weed - or volunteer flower - photo as delphinium.  I am not sure.  It's much tinier flower than the delphiniums I have seen.  On the other hand, this one is wild and the ones I have seen were tame.  So maybe!  Anyway, thanks!

king, I understand your dismay with the way the USA is going. You take on a real adventure and being young, you probably have the stamina to make such a move. Be sure to keep in touch when you do go and let us know if it is any better in New Zealand. They do have more environmentally friendly policies, as I understand it.

Barbara, very good ideas. I like the vinegar, baking soda and salt idea. That makes life much easier. 

Thanks for the recipe for soda fungicide. Yes, powdery mildew is one of the problems. Another is that is persistent is shotgun or artillery fungus. I have it because I have wood chunks for my pathways, so I create my own problem. I don't want a stone or other materials. 

Yes, we have an excellent extension agent here attached to the horticulture research at Washington State University. They provide excellent support.
